Students Can Get Ahead and Save at UC Blue Ash This Summer


April 8, 2015 – UC Blue Ash College is offering students a free credit hour this summer.  The college is renewing its 6-for-5 Summer Program, which means students can take six credit hours and only pay for five.

“This is a great option for our current students, as well as any college students who are home for the summer and want to get ahead on their courses,” said Dr. Cady Short-Thompson, Dean of UC Blue Ash.

To qualify for the free credit hour, students must be a resident of Ohio who receives in-state tuition rates and they need to register for at least six credit hours at UC Blue Ash for the summer semester by May 7, 2015.  Tuition at UC Blue Ash is about half that of most other colleges and universities, so students get a great deal on top of the free credit hour.

This is the third year UC Blue Ash has offered the 6-for-5 Summer Program to help increase enrollment during the quietest time on campus. The college has an enrollment of more than 5,000 students during the spring and fall semesters. About half that many take courses over the summer.

Summer classes are offered in different terms at UC Blue Ash, with the first term starting on May 11.  For more information, go to or call (513) 745-5740.
